Obviously Splatoon fans are going to see mention of 'SquidKid' and automatically think of Nintendo's series. That said, Epic might be using this as a name for countless other items in the game. It honestly would be pretty surprising to see Splatoon represented in Fortnite, but stranger things have happened!
